Very good and family friendly. Can have up to 4 flavors on one shave ice cone. My fav is the Eastside Sunrise, one of the suggestion combos, which consists of sour cherry, mango, and passion fruit!

The kitchen churned out some banana pancakes fast for our two year old nephew to keep him occupied while the rest of the food was cooked. Very thoughtful! Thank you!

Portuguese Bean Soup is a favorite on all the isles. On Kaua'i, Ono Family's has won awards. Try some! In downtown Kapa'a; parking on the side. Busy intersection.

We had breakfast at the restaurant, very good. My daughter and I choose spam breakfast just for fun, very delicious! Others had western omelets too. The place was very busy with locals. Servers were nice.

I had shaved ice many times on the island and this place was pretty good. I was a little disappointed because they advertised many flavors but they were out of some key flavors like chocolate and another flavor. All the seating is outside and is...More

Great breakfast and the best shave ice on the island. We always visit once or twice while we're there.
